Our Feedback
Ordered 60 Pearlwort plugs in mid-July as a low maintenance alternative to grass. Packaging and protection was excellent and plugs were in superb condition. I split each plug into 4 and planted directly into the soil which had been well prepared beforehand. The somewhat warmer summer meant more frequent watering to ensure the plugs settled into place. By next summer I anticipate the soil between the stepping stones in the garden to be completely filled with pearlwort. It is planted in direct sun and deeply shaded areas but all are growing and spreading well. Most of the plugs flowered and the spread has been quite amazing. Because of the layout, a lawnmower or strimmer would not fit so an alternative had to be found. Victoriana Nursery provided the perfect solution - a low maintenance grass alternative which also produces small white flowers. Everyone who sees it loves the look and the idea of no real maintenance. Victoriana Nursery has a range of unusual plants so I will definitely be after future purchases and spreading the word to those who are curious or are 'green fingered'. Great value for money. Keep the area weed free as the plants spread and weeds will be a thing of the past.

This vegetable plant collection has been put together for those who aren't really sure where to start! We feel that the plants within this collection are fairly easy to grow (provided you remember to water them) and don't take too long to be ready to harvest. The best bit of all is that you can't beat the flavour of homegrown produce (and the vitamin content is at its max as well).

We have chosen beetroot, broad beans, French beans, rocket, peas and runner beans. However, we offer many other types of vegetables as small plants so if you don't like our choice then please feel free to select your own.

All our plants are fully hardened off when we send them to you, which means that they are ready to be planted straight out into the garden (no need to pot them up and bring them on in a greenhouse or anything like that. In fact they prefer to go straight in the ground or in the raised beds that you have ready for them). We never recommend feeding the plants provided you have reasonable soil in the first place (and some of these plants will actually put nutrients back into the ground when you have finished harvesting their crop so don't be in too much of a hurry to pull them up).

You will need to offer some sort of support for the French and Runner beans to climb up. This can be trellis or bean poles (or we use bamboo canes, which we take down for the winter, move and reuse the following year) up to about 6 feet (1.8 metres) tall. The peas need from some support up to about 3 feet (90 cms) high but if you can't offer this they will grow in a 'heap' on the ground. The beetroot, broad beans and rocket don't need any support at all. For planting distances please check out the individual pages for each plant (there is a link for them in the list below).

Don't forget we are always at the end of an email or the phone if you need advice but gardening really isn't as difficult as you might think and can be very relaxing and good for you (increase your vitamin D from the sunshine, but don't forget the sunscreen if it's really sunny!). Go on give it a try; you know you want to!
